Avaya (News - Alert), a global provider of business collaboration and communications solutions that is focused on offering unified communications to companies all over the globe, recently unveiled its Ethernet Routing Switch (ERS) 3500 portfolio. This is a new series of compact VoIP switches that have been created from the ground up to power converged services in both single and multiple sites that average around 100 users or less and for midsize-to-large companies that are in search of a robust switch that can offer reliable connectivity within remote offices.
According to a recent article, the ERS 3500 Series encompasses six Ethernet switches that are available in 10 and 24-port configurations. Through support for IEEE (News - Alert) 802.3at PoE+, which delivers up to 32 Watts of power per port to end devices, ERS 3500s are able to power IP phones, wireless LAN access points, networked high-definition CCTV cameras and other devices, riding companies of being required to maintain separate power supplies for each unit, as well as significantly cutting costs when changing the system in any way.
This VoIP switch maintains a competitive edge against other switches currently on the market as it offers a stackable chassis architecture on all of the most recent 24 port models. Due to this capability, businesses will be able to stack up to eight ERS 3500 units which will allow for much easier management.
Looking to raise the bar on connectivity, last month Avaya launched the Cisco (News - Alert) 500 Series Stackable Managed Switches that are priced from $590 to $5,556 and were designed specifically for the SMB space.
Just this week, news broke in the VoIP switch industry that Sippy Software released version 3.0.0 of its Sippy Softswitch. The Sippy Softswitch is an extremely scalable SIP platform that can deliver multiple VoIP services to different types of customers including residential home users all the way up to wholesale clients.
